"The much-cited Fendt spirit lives on through our company's employees," says Peter-Josef Paffen, Chairman of the AGCO/Fendt Management Board. "The commitment and team-spirit of each and every member of staff shape a company, and create an atmosphere people love to work in. That's why it's important that we give special thanks to our long-term employees for their many years of service, but also their partners, who play no small part in our Fendtlers turning up to work motivated and healthy. In some cases, for half a century!”, quips Peter-Josef Paffen.
Ludwig Maier, Technical Specialist in Testing, and Konrad Guggemos, Assembly Engineer in Testing, started working for Fendt 50 years ago and have seen a lot in their time.
After a jubilant speech by the Fendt boss, all those celebrating their special milestones at the Anniversary Evening were handed a gift and had their photo taken. This was followed by a multi-course dinner and live music, which brought a number of couples to the dancefloor. It just goes to show that not only can Fendtlers work, but they know how to party, too.
